Quality and substantial meal.

Delicious meal and well-trained, pleasant service. Locally owned ... small business entrepreneur, well worthy of community support.

We've been dining here since it opened and never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is always pleasant, service is good and the meals are well presented and delicious. No complaints here....check it out. You'll feel the same. Tip: make a reservation.

Great food at great prices. Chef is an excellent cook. Seating could be updated. Limited seating, so get there early as it is a busy place.

The food and service are good. It is not the top place in Sydney to eat at but it is certainly worth a try. The service is quick until it gets busy, then it slows down a lot. Prices are decent and I would eat here again.

Had another lovely lunch yesterday at the Olive tree. Ate the Lemon Basil phyllo tart and thought I had died and gone to heaven. It is so worth a visit and excellent value for money.

Great little restaurant in a hidden nook of town. Family member from the area recommended this place a++. The food was hot hot and so tasty. Definitely a place to go! Only thing that could happy would be smaller portions. And that's not a bad thing I was way to full at half my meal. Going again

I can't say enough about The Olive Tree! We go there a lot, and have never been disappointed. The service is top notch, decor is beautiful, and the food....incredible. Everything is fresh and tasty and presented beautifully. The portion sizes are perfect as well. Prices are excellent as well. I would highly recommend The Olive Tree for lunch with friends,... More
